The Best Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

They’re gluten-free, lower in sugar, vegan, so simple, and so delicious. I’m bummed I couldn’t share these on National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, but I’m bringing you the recipe now and you don’t want to skip out on it.

Chewy and soft inside with a slightly crispy outside. Embedded with gooey chocolate chips and a hint of almond.

Sweetened with coconut sugar and maple syrup.

As mentioned in a previous recipe, my absolute favorite gluten-free flour blend to use is Bob’s Red Mill 1-1 GF flour. It already contains xanthum gum and always creates the perfect texture! (Not sponsored).
